Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning

Whew!  This last week flew past, and its already the middle of February!  I know that as I try to cram as many activities in as possible, the time will go even faster.  So far, I have a trip to Dongdaemun planned (need to get the last few craft supplies before our movers come), a sleepover at our house this coming weekends, watching a friends kids the next (payback for both friends watching mine for my CDC observations), and attempting to get to Insadong and Myeongdong before we leave.  Although those last two might have to wait til the week before we leave.  Jon is going to start leave a few days before we actually get on the plane, so that we can see a bit more of Korea before the opportunity is completely gone.  :P   I do wish that we hadn't passed so many opportunities up because we didn't want to spend the money, but we have seen lots of cool places and done lots of new things here, so I am happy. 

I will definitely miss the kid friendliness here- my kids will not understand why people don't want to talk to them when we get back stateside!  Jacob can ( and does!) strike up a conversation with pretty much anyone he sees, even if they don't speak the same language! :P 

We have already sold our couch, microwave and crock pot.  On the list are the entertainment center, the loft bed, twin bed and toddler bed, since the floors are heated and the kids would rather spend the night on the floor for some reason.  Plus, Jacob scared the heck out of me with a huge scream tonight, when he "fell off the side of Cait's bed while I was walking on the edge!"  (Insert parental snort of "Well, duh.  Don't walk on the bed railings.").  He's got a nice little scrape bruise about 2 inches away from a very sensitive area. 
Add that to the fact that he has spent the last two days with a 103-104 degree fever, and its still about 101 today, and he wasn't feeling too great at bedtime.  My poor man. 

I'm feeling accomplished today- finished editing a session super early this morning, got most of my chores out of the way (including mopping the entire living room and kitchen, which I dread), swept and vacuumed the foyer (we aren't allowed to wear shoes in the house, and the foyer gets really nasty very fast with all the dirt that is tracked in).  I really need to peel myself off the internet and go fold laundry, since Jacob doesn't have any pants left. :P 

Some good news, though- Jon said that the tentative plan is to let him have half days as much as possible until the end of the month, so he can wrap up all the loose ends (vet, car, records, financial paperwork, etc) before he starts clearing.  So that will be a huge help to me.. lol.. I won't have to fight to have the car in order to go around and do things. 

Anyhow, nothing else to update with.  I had planned to share a couple of pictures, but its not letting me click browse, so I will wait for another day. :D
